May 31, 2022 ~ Olathe Public Schools Food Services provides free meals to children during the summer. This summer, meals will be served Monday through Thursday, June 6-July 28 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. (no meal service on July 4) at the following locations:

  • Northview Elementary School – 900 N. Woodland Rd.
  • Ridgeview Elementary School – 1201 E. Elm Terr.
  • Westview Elementary School – 500 S. Troost St.

Any child ages 1-18 may participate. There are no income or registration requirements; however, participating families must eat the meals onsite.

Each year, the United States Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like Olathe Public Schools Food Services to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer. Get more information about the Summer Food Service Program in Kansas.

In addition, Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE) will distribute free at-home rapid (antigen) COVID-19 tests at Olathe Public Schools summer lunch meal sites for those who are interested. Test kits will be available at each location Monday-Thursday while supplies last.

Families are encouraged to take a free test kit for each member of their family and use it when needed. Testing is recommended for individuals who have been exposed to someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 or who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Rapid tests are self-administered, and results are available within 15 minutes.  Visit the JCDHE website for more information on their COVID-19 testing services
